Our Evanston students learn piano AND have fun!


Piano Power has maintained an Evanston student base since 2001. We’re proud to be part of a city with such a vibrant artistic and cultural life!

Why is it great to be a music student in Evanston?

With so many live music and art resources at their fingertips, piano students in Evanston have plenty of opportunities to enrich their music education in addition to lessons with Piano Power.

The amazing concert venue SPACE hosts concerts for musical lovers of all ages. Many music-related festivals, including the YEA! Young Evanston Artists Festival, allow students and their families to enjoy music with their community.

Evanston is also home to the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University, which offers a wide range of family-friendly programming. Some of our students have reported hanging out near Wildcat Alley to catch the marching band warm up before a Northwestern football game!

Piano Power founder Abraham Levitan has participated in First Night Evanston, the annual downtown New Year’s Eve fest. In addition, Piano Power students have been known to rock the E.T.H.S. Battle of the Bands, and to enjoy the programming of Dance Is My Everything (D.I.M.E.), and the Evanston Art Center.

Age recommendations

Our private lessons are appropriate for pianists aged 5 to 105. For students younger than five, we’re happy to discuss alternatives to private lessons. Somewhere around age 5, a combined increase in finger strength, reading ability, and concentration makes a student ready for private lessons.

Practice expectations

Your piano teacher will work with you to create a practice plan that works for your student’s schedule. The single most important element of piano practice is regularity. We know our students are busy! But devoting even a modest amount of time each day to piano practice produces much better results than relying on weekly “cram sessions.” Ideally, your student will make piano a regular part of his or her day.

Digital pianos welcome

We recognize that not all of our students have pianos in their homes. We are happy to conduct lessons on digital pianos as well. Unlike a keyboard, a digital piano has weighted keys that provide the feel and touch of a traditional piano. For many of our families, it’s the perfect solution.

Piano Power recitals

If your student has been receiving piano instruction with Piano Power for three months or more, he or she is invited to participate in our annual spring recital. Held in April, the recital is a wonderful, low-key way to celebrate your student’s achievements. Our pianists perform a huge variety of repertoire — from classical to original compositions to Top-40 radio hits.
